Heterotopic pancreas is a congenital anomaly in which pancreatic tissue is anatomically separate from the main gland. The most common locations of this displacement include the upper gastrointestinal tract-specifically, the stomach, duodenum, and proximal jejunum. Less common sites are the esophagus, ileum, Meckel diverticulum, biliary tree, mesentery, and spleen. Uncomplicated heterotopic pancreas is typically asymptomatic, with the lesion being discovered incidentally during an unrelated surgery, during an imaging examination, or at autopsy...

INTRODUCTION: Single-incision laparoscopic surgery has been reported to be a safe and feasible technique for colorectal cancer. However, the technique needs skill due to the limitations of the device. An organ retractor is a new grasp device that has the potential to overcome these limitations. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 63-year-old woman with a tumor palpated in the right lower quadrant of the abdomen presented to hospital. Colonoscopy showed a type 2 mass with nearly complete stenosis, and a biopsy specimen showed well-differentiated adenocarcinoma...

Incidence of gastric cancer is high in China and standard radical operation is currently the main treatment for gastric cancer. Postoperative complications, especially some special complications, can directly affect the prognosis of patients, even result in the increase of mortality. But the incidences of these special complications are low, so these complications are often misdiagnosed and delayed in treatment owing to insufficient recognition of medical staff. These special complications include (1) Peterson hernia: It is an abdominal hernia developed in the space between Roux loop and transverse colon mesentery after Roux-Y reconstruction of digestive tract...

The patient underwent robot-assisted total gastrectomy for an early gastric cancer. Thirty-four months later, he was admitted to another hospital because of abdominal discomfort. Computed tomography scans showed a giant solid mass approximately 13 cm in diameter in the lower abdomen. We performed a resection of the tumor; operative findings showed a giant solid tumor, without adhesion, in the mesentery of the jejunum. The tumor did not involve other parts of the small intestine. The resected tumor had a smooth surface with an elastic hard consistency...

A 65-year-old man with bloody stools was diagnosed with sigmoid colon cancer on colonoscopy. A preoperative barium enema and a computed tomography colonography scan showed a medial displacement of his descending colon. The preoperative clinical diagnosis was stage cT1 colon cancer, N0, M0, cStage I . Laparoscopic sigmoidectomy was performed. We found adhesions between the descending colon mesentery and the pelvic wall, and noted that the descending colon was not fused with the retroperitoneum and was shifted to the midline...

The patient was 77-year-old man. He visited our hospital with the chief complaint of an abdominal mass in March 2015. We diagnosed the patient with transverse colon cancer and he was suspected of having malignant lymphoma. In March 2016, we attempted to perform right hemicolectomy for the transverse colon cancer, but it was difficult because swollen lymph nodes had formed a large mass with the surrounding tissue, including vessels of the mesentery. We could only complete the surgery after mesenteric lymph node biopsy...

We examined the feasibility of umbilical diverting ileostomy for overweight and obese patients with rectal cancer undergoing laparoscopic surgery. Four patients who were overweight or obese (BMI > 27 kg/m(2) ) were initially scheduled for the creation of a conventional loop ileostomy. Intraoperatively, however, this was considered too complicated because of thick subcutaneous fat, bulky mesentery, or both. Instead, patients received a diverting ileostomy with the placement of an umbilical stoma. All patients had protruding umbilical ileostomies...

BACKGROUND: It is common knowledge that high ligation of blood vessels at the D3 level and complete mesocolic excision (CME) are two critical points of right hemicolectomy for right colon cancer (RCC). (1-5) To date, a safe strategy for completing these two procedures under laparoscopic surgery has not been extensively described. The authors provide a video to demonstrate laparoscopic right hemicolectomy (D3 + CME) with an optimal mesentery-defined approach. By identifying three "tri-junctions," this approach facilitates dissection of the entire mesocolon along the embryologic planes as far centrally as possible and enables the high tie of feeding vessels at bifurcation...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the ability of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and systematic evaluation at surgery to predict optimal cytoreduction in primary advanced ovarian cancer and to develop a preoperative scoring system for cancer staging. STUDY DESIGN: Preoperative MRI and standard laparotomy were performed in 99 women with either ovarian or primary peritoneal cancer. Using univariate and multivariate logistic regression analysis of a systematic description of the tumor in nine abdominal compartments obtained by MRI and during surgery plus clinical parameters, a scoring system was designed that predicted non-optimal cytoreduction...

Anomalies of the appendix are extremely rare, and a horseshoe appendix is even rarer. A literature search has revealed only five reported cases. In this report, we present a case of a horseshoe appendix.A 78-year-old man was referred for further examination following a positive fecal occult blood test. A mass in his ascending colon was detected on colonoscopy, while computed tomography showed that it was connected to the appendix. Tumor invasion derived from the ascending colon or appendix was suspected. We diagnosed ascending colon cancer prior to laparoscopic ileocecal resection...

Cancer of uterine cervix is one of the most common malignancies in women. Metastatic recurrence of cervical cancer in spleen is rare, mostly seen in autopsies. Splenic metastasis from cervical cancer in a living patient without disseminated metastases is rarer. Here, we present the case of a lady aged 46 years with cervical cancer-squamous cell carcinoma-who had undergone radical hysterectomy and postoperative 50 Gy of intensity modulated radiation therapy in 25 fractions and 50 mg of weekly cisplatin for 6 weeks...

BACKGROUND: It can be difficult to locate the superior mesenteric vein and dissect around middle colic vessels during laparoscopic right hemicolectomy with complete mesocolon excision due to a high rate of vascular variations in the superior mesenteric vessels. Therefore, we report a modified technique for hand-assisted laparoscopic right hemicolectomy with complete mesocolic excision and central vascular ligation, which addresses these two problems. METHODS: Thirty-one consecutive patients with right colon cancer underwent this procedure from March 2014 to August 2015...

Angiogenesis, defined as the growth of new blood vessels from existing ones, plays a key role in development, growth, and tissue repair. Its necessary role in tumor growth and metastasis has led to the creation of a new category of anti-angiogenic cancer therapies. Preclinical development and evaluation of potential drug candidates require models that mimic real microvascular networks. Here, we describe the rat mesentery culture model as a simple ex vivo assay that offers time-lapse imaging of intact microvascular network remodeling and demonstrate its application for anti-angiogenic drug testing...
